Liver and prostate adenocarcinoma: an "estrogen-free" environment?


Journal Article

We report 1 patient who improved with local irradiation and 2 others who stabilized and symptomatically improved with chemotherapy. Hopefully, future reports will shed more light on the treatment of hepatic metastases from prostatic adenocarcinoma.
